The School of Computer Science at the University of Oklahoma invites applications for an open rank, 12-month full-time Director with a start date of Fall 2024. We seek candidates who will provide leadership and vision to lead the School to a new level. The School of Computer Science is growing rapidly in size and impact. It has 24 faculty from a wide variety of backgrounds, more than 800 undergraduate students, and over 140 graduate students.  It has vibrant research and teaching programs that are aligned with OU’s strategic plan and is a key partner in OU’s world-class Data Science and Analytics Institute. The School is housed in the Gallogly College of Engineering and has an ABET-accredited BS program in Computer Science and also offers MS and PhD degrees.

Our faculty has nearly doubled in size, from 13 to 24, in the last 6 years, thanks to deep institutional support to the School of Computer Science. With  a continued commitment to graduating more computer scientists and engineers, we expect to continue to grow over the next five years. With an annual research expenditure of $6.3M, and $9M in new awards in FY23, the School is second in research funding in the Gallogly College of Engineering.  Our research expenditures have grown from $1.4M to $6.3M in the last 3 years, with explosive growth expected in the near future due to an influx of 11 talented new faculty in the last four years and collaborations within and across academic disciplines. The School is experiencing rapid growth in student enrollment, an increase of almost 27% (from around 660 to 840) in the last 3 years. The main research groups in the School consist of machine learning, bioinformatics, cybersecurity, networking, and visualization.
